Today, July 7, Robert A. Heinlein would have turned 100 years old. (Biography; bibliography/concordance.)
They're throwing a big party for Bob in Kansas City this weekend. I know somebody who's going.
You know, when you're a kid, you read a lot of books and you listen to a lot of music that later, as an adult, you simply can't stand.
Most of the science fiction I read in my youth falls into that category.
Heinlein, on the other hand, just gets better and better.
